Forum Conference Getting Underway

The annual conference sponsored by the Forum on Education Abroad gets started Wednesday, with more than 700 international-education faculty, administrators and professionals descending on Portland, Ore., to meet on the theme of "Being There: Teaching and Learning Abroad".

Keynoters this year include Peter Chilson of Washington State University who will read from his nonfiction on travels between the border between the Ivory Coast and Mali, and Mike Reddin, a retired London School of Economics faculty member who will challenge conference participants to examine their assumptions about study abroad experiences.

Smart Study Abroad will be at the conference through its end on Friday, so check back frequently in the coming days for updates and multimedia.
